On the night we went, the gorgeous alfresco area at Graze was buzzing (even when we left at 11pm). The menu is extensive with lots of delectable offerings, including Asian and Western barbecue, vegetarian, plus a grazing menu.
After umming and ahhing over a yummy mojita, we ordered grilled red mullet with salad of blood orange, parsley coulis and fried garlic and king prawns three ways: tempura, chilled and grilled with coconut coriander sorbet.
We loved the red mullet and its refreshing salad, while the grilled prawn was particularly sensational with the sorbet. Already happy, we went into further rapture with the pork hock with red and black plum salsa and redcurrant chili caramel.
The pork was an explosion of delicious juices under a super crackly skin. We were less impressed by the roasted barramundi (fillet) on a pumpkin and goats cheese ravioli with chili plum salsa and chive oil—the chili overpowered the other rich, competing, flavors.
We couldn’t resist the hot chocolate pudding with white chocolate ice cream and fruit minestrone with marscapone ice cream. While the fruit minestrone was delightfully light, one crack of the pudding saw an eruption of molten chocolate—heavenly.
With good food supported by swift amiable service and great atmosphere, Graze is a winner.
